I am a member of the Centre for Distributed Computing, Networking and Security
within IIDI, doing Research and Knowledge Exchange projects in the areas of software engineering, applications development, healthcare,
speech and language, scalable systems, cloud computing, industry 4.0, information sharing, simulation, e-security, e-commerce, and e-learning. I supervise Honours, MSc, Internship, and PhD
students, and am line manager for a number of Research Staff. My teaching is in the Software Engineering Subject Group at the School of Computing at Edinburgh
Napier University, and I link my modules closely to my research and knowledge exchange experience in order to give students learning experiences and skills that are highly sought after by employers.
